Final Report: 2015-2020 Strategic Plan for Sustainability


The President's Advisory Comittee on Sustainability (PACS) presents to you the Final Report for the 2015-2020 Strategic Plan for Sustainability. This report highlights the accomplishments the University of Regina has made over the past five years, and includes accomplishments that have occurred up until March 2021.

While progress has been made in many areas, there are some actions that require long-term focus, ongoing support and further community consultation. Many of these long-term focus areas will carry-forward into the 2021-2026 Sustainability Action Plan, which is currently in development.

We hope you enjoy reading this report and seeing the significant sustainability advancements the University of Regina has achieved. Our campus community has much to be proud of!
